LexisNexis® Martindale-Hubbell® was asked to research their comprehensive database of over 1.2 million lawyers and firms in over 160 countries and identify U.S. law firms of 10 or more attorneys, where at least one out of three of their lawyers achieved the AV Preeminent® Peer Review Rating. This rating indicates the rated lawyer has been deemed by his or her peers to have demonstrated the highest level of ethical standards and legal ability.

Russell Named 2012 Legal Elite Recipient

The June issue of Nevada Business Magazine lists Nevada’s 2012 Legal Elite recipients. Out of 10,790 attorneys, 225 are selected. Allison MacKenzie Law Firm made the list.

Congratulations to Ryan Russell for his commitment to superior legal representation. Ryan is part of the top 2% in the state.

Legal Elites are selected by votes from their peers in the legal community. Each attorney who qualifies within the strict guidelines is given a score for the type of vote that they receive. A vote from their own firm only counts for one point. A vote received from outside the firm counts for three points. Top scorers in each category are then verified a second time for eligibility.

Again, Allison MacKenzie Law Firm is recognized for it’s most qualified attorneys in Carson City and Northern Nevada.
